Hello my dear loved ones :)
so this past week has been crazy. I don't really know where to start because all that is on my mind right now is that KYLE IS GETTING HIS MISSION CALL THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!! do you realize how hard that is going to be to focus this week?!!!! ahahah jokes, I am just super pumped for him!!!!!!
but if you remember from last week I told you about Sharon, so she is still so keen and wants to be baptized but she has a really bad drinking problem and she is struggling with family stuff as well so it has been really tough on her. And man, even though we just met her, I love her sooo much!!!! It breaks my heart to watch her suffer and not be able to stop this addiction. so she is going to go to this public health detox/ rehab thing for a week or so, so that will be good. She really does need that right now so she can progress.
We have also been able to do lots of service lately. It is the best. I can say now that I love to mow the lawn. hahahah except the grass here is terrible compared to Utah grass! its the worst.. and there are soo many bugs its disgusting but I do love to do service! its such a stress reliever. :) haha
Also a small miracle that we saw this week happened yesterday, after we had finished our companionship study in the morning, Sister Enero felt prompted that we should go visit this recent convert/less active lady that we haven't been able to get a hold of for 2 months. but we went and she was there! and we had a good lesson with her and she said she wants to come back to church and that she wants us to teach her two little boys that aren't baptized! wahooo! i love those tender mercies that Heavenly Father blesses us with everyday.
Well i love you soo much. and i miss you more than anything but i am so grateful to be a missionary right now. i have learned so much and i have truly come to understand the atonement and my Savior better. and there is nothing that brings greater happiness than being able to experience that for yourself and seeing others do that as well!
love you!!!!!! and please pray for opportunities to look for service and missionary opportunities. i promise that it will make your week better. :)
love, Sister Alldredge
oh also we have temple p-day next so we wont email until Wednesday. so HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDPA ALLDREDGE!!! love you and miss you soo much! :)
